GLOBAL SOF IMPERATIVES
2021 SOF Imperatives Documentreleased on 9 FEB 2021
We have officially released our 2021 SOF Imperatives document.
It fully outlines the Global SOF Foundation's recommended priorities for Special Operations, highlighting that U.S. and partner SOF are among the most capable and affordable instruments in safeguarding our security to U.S. Congressional leadership.
The 2021 SOF Imperatives Forum will take place on 16 JUNE 2021 to further discuss the contents of the document and chart a path forward.
What are the SOF Imperatives?
Global violent extremism and near-peer threats are increasing against a backdrop of U.S. Department of Defense budget pressure and political polarization in Washington, D.C. It is more vital than ever to educate our political leaders on the pivotal role of U.S. Special Operations Forces (SOF) as an essential tool in combating these national security threats.
The Global SOF Foundation develops an annual Imperatives for SOF platform document to support this education.
